SSE Arena, Wembley - Heavyweight prospect Fabio Wardley (10-0, 9 KOs) wanted to make a statement and he sure did, as the unbeaten prospect demolished Richard Lartey (14-4, 11 KOs) in two rounds. (photos by Mark Robinson)
Lartey was pressing forward, looking to land something big. Wardley working with his jab off the backfoot and just feeling out his opponent.
In the second round, Wardley was taking his time, working the jab and then landed a big two-punch combination and sent Lartey down and out. Lartey was down and very hurt as the ringside doctors entered the ring to give him oxygen.
Lartey had previously been stopped in four rounds by heavyweight destroyer Daniel Dubois.
